TMBA454: What Does Your City Whisper?

TMBA454: What Does Your City Whisper? post image

Dan and Ian have spent many hours on this show talking about location and in particular the cities that location-independent entrepreneurs choose to live in.

A little while ago, Dan read an article called Cities and Ambition by Paul Graham which theorizes that the cities we visit actually send signals to us in a variety of unspoken ways.

Afterward, he felt compelled to write a blog post about the ways that certain cities "whisper" to us.

On today's episode, you will hear that blog post, as well as some thoughts and reflections on some of our favorite cities.

We'll be sharing what we love about those cities, why we can't stop visiting them, and what each of those cities has been "whispering" to us.

TMBA452: How to Master a Mastermind

TMBA452: How to Master a Mastermind post image

On today's podcast, Dan and Ian are talking about one of the most critical elements to their own success in business: masterminds.

We've talked about the importance of masterminds before on this podcast, but we believe it is an issue worth addressing again because we have seen the benefits that entrepreneurs can achieve from them firsthand.

When taken advantage of correctly, the value of a great mastermind cannot be understated, and masterminds have played a vital role in the business journey of this week's guest.

Ryan Heneise is the founder of Booster Stage, an agency that does web app development for startups. Ryan was a guest at our recent event in Austin, Texas and took part in his first official mastermind.

On this week's episode, you'll hear from Ryan about how that event unfolded, and the benefits that he has seen from attending that mastermind. You'll also hear tips on how to get the most out of a mastermind, and how to create a successful mastermind yourself.

Every once in a while a podcast episode jumps out at me and grabs my attention. This week I was so pleasantly surprised by Scooter Braun's appearance on the the Bill Simmons podcast (Bill's approach to interviews is unique and elite. His conversation with Hulk Hogan is an excellent example of his style). Anyway, Scooter is most...
